    Very good school. Outstanding caring faculty . New principal is a great visionary leader. It is the best education value in the area. I'm putting my $20 000 a year I was spending on private school into his college fund because of the quality of this school.

    I'm a parent and i hate Dallas ISD its put to much pressure on us. the parents would rather it be were the children could wear anything they desire to school cause they have tons of close in the closet but every year and monthes just for DISD ONLY we have to buy uniforms over and over again. I think its just stupid. Carrolton is way better they dnt have uniforms. I would rather switch schools.

    We have a 6th grade girl that was having issues at another Dallas ISD middle school with bullying lazy administration and an overall lack of structure in the school. Since being at E.D. Walker she has excelled and bloomed like a flower. She is now an A B Honor Roll Student Commended on Reading TAKS and 100% on Math TAKS. She is in honors math and works hard to do her homework to the best of her abilities. The administration including everyone from the support staff security administration and the teachers has been a strong positive influence on our Daughter. We are very much appreciative of this school and we highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a good Middle School educational experience in Dallas ISD. Thanks to all and it is nice to see a school being run properly in Dallas.

    Walker is awesome--the teachers are fantastic. My 6th grader LOVES science now! I am so glad we moved into the Walker area.

    I love it here and so does my 6th grader! The teachers staff and principal make themselves available to the students and parents when needed. The principal demands the kids come to school ready to learn being respectful and has the vision the school needs to exceed its potential. I am happier w/ Walker in the first 3 weeks of school than I was in 4 years at Lakewood Elementary. The teachers actually care--they take the time to find subjects that they can carry over into the classroom that will excite the kids about Science Math etc. so they want to come to class and find out what's happening that day! Not a doubt in my mind Walker will be Recognized or Exemplerary status this year.

    My son did not start to pick up on learning until he came to this school. I am so very proud of the staff and my baby for putting forth the effort that some schools wouldn't.

    Do not let your child go here. The staff is rude and children here have no motivation. They encourage students to 'take a nap' if they are having difficulties
